Red`s label says he`s red. But no matter how hard he tries to color strawberries, foxes, and firetrucks, they just don`t come out right. His family and friends try to help him color red through encouragement and advice, but it doesn`t help. Nothing helps until Berry asks him to color a nice blue ocean for her boat. And Red discovers that even though his label says Red, he`s really Blue! A wonderful and subtle book about being true to ourselves no matter what label we`re given.

Book cover 1 to 20, Animals Aplenty New Review
Katie Viggers (2014) , under 40 pages
Audience: Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, Humor, Read Aloud

One fox in a pair of colorful socks starts “1 to 20, Animals Aplenty” with a cheeky grin; he is quickly joined by other familiar and unusual animals who introduce themselves with quirky charm through rhyming couplets. Readers will delight in the humor of the pictures and text which subtly teaches by labeling animal groups. No matter how many times you read this book, you can number it as one of those that counts for a great time!

Book cover Big Bug New Review
Henry Cole (2014) , under 40 pages
Audience: Babies, Toddlers, Preschool
Category: Concept, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


Are you big or little? The answer all depends on what is next to you! A bug may look big up close, but when the bug is sitting on an even bigger leaf, the bug does not look quite so big. That is called “scale,” and this beautiful book is all about scale. Starting with a "big bug," you will find everything looks small next to something else, except for the big, blue sky! The colorful illustrations show this as they pop from the pages. You will find size does matter in the pages of this lovely book.

Do you know what your five senses are? Do you know how to use them? This book of big, beautiful photographs captures everyday objects. Page after page of pictures are so vivid and vibrant that you will practically be able to feel the prick of the cactus needle and taste the tang of the lemon. The vocabulary of the senses provides the narration with words like bitter, sweet, shiny, and soft. Romp through this sensory delight as you explore your senses.
